Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he is unlikely to get another chance at play at a World Cup finals.

The Sweden captain was their star with two goals against Portugal on Tuesday, but unfortunately for them Cristiano Ronaldo was in electric form as he bagged a hat-trick to win the tie 4-2 over the two legs.

"It was probably the last attempt to reach the World Cup with the national team for me," admitted PSG front-man Ibrahimovic.

"Congratulations to Portugal, but both teams deserved to get to the World Cup, but the disappointment is great as a World Cup in Brazil is now only a dream for Sweden."

Sweden coach Erik Hamren admitted: "When you lose like this it is cruel and it hurts.

"It is small margins in football, we were very close to making it 1-0, which would then have been a whole different ball game."
